My experience was that the stewarding was a bit messed up as most of them didnt know where anything was lol, there were these two guys when we asked where our block was one of them said it was one way and the other guy said it was the completely opposite way. Also the snacks and food outlets were pretty busy so i wasnt surprised it was a little annoying for people(one of those workers really got on my nerves). Also its a good place to excersie as you have to walk ALOT to get to where your seats are. However (and believe me when i say this) the acoustics are absolutely AWESOME, there weren't even that many of us in the stadium but every time someone scored(in the celebrity matches) the cheers where literally deafening and i wonder what it would sound like with 90,000 people in there. Inside the stadium you feel so close to the field and the views are perfect.

I was on the club level and the seats had padding and we had arm rests and cup holders, i dont think the rest of the stadium has that which would've been good.

Make sure when you are copying a link to a photo, you copy the link when the photo is in its full size and not in its thumbnail view.

Was working at Wembley today. Wonderful stadium. I am looking forward to the match next weekend (Italy Vs. England- Under 21). Expecting larger crowds. Today's job was a walk in the park.

All i can say i would definately give it an 11 out of 10 if there was a proper match on with a 90,000 crowd, the atmosphere would be so amazing as i saw today with only a handful of people, the noise that can be generated in the stadium is awesome!! Also you feel so close to the pitch.

there were some teething problems today(some clueless stewards and workers), architecturally the stadium is unbelievable but noone can rate it from a test event yet imho because thats all it was, i guess we will have to wait for a proper match. next saturday would give us an idea(i can't wait!!) but the Cup Final would be the big one.

What can I say...bloody fantastic stadium, thanx to all of you who posted those pics, much appreciated. Looks like you had a good time 'Its AlL gUUd', I'm exceedingly jealous you lucky son of a.... "walks off in a huff*

It's no surprise to hear about the acoustics, there has been so much talk about how they used computer generated designs to come up with teh right harmonics and sound reverberations so that it sounds fantastic inside, can't wait to go there some time!

90,000 people in it next week should be a sight, I'll be expecting lots more pics on that day too!

Azteca...a 10...hardly. It's a colossal stadium, one filled with history and passion, but the stadium itself (from what I've heard and seen) is an absolute
mess, poor facilities, dirty, obstructed views, cramped seating.....

But anyway, easy 11 for Wembley!

If the England team can't raise their game when they start playing here they don't deserve to be in the squad at all!

The stadium looks fantastic i'm glad it is read for the f.a. cup final (almost). There are just a couple of minor issues from the photos i have seen. I would like to know why the t.v. screen doesn't go all the way across and cover the white sides, which break up the flow of the stadium a little. Maybe they will be used for adversting or something. Another thing is that on the wembley webcam during the day some of the aluminium panels on the right side look a different shade and it doesn't look complete. I also don't understand why there were such longg ques on the community for the food when they are supposed to have so many outlets, is it because of the staffing? If anyone can clear these up i would be completely happy with the stadium from the photos. Thanks
